Agricon GmbH

agricon is a leading provider of solutions for digital plant cultivation in Central and Eastern Europe. Since 1997 we have been helping farmers use their machines, operating resources and work time more efficiently. As a result of this, the quality of plant cultivation decisions improves considerably. Our experienced agricultural engineers and service technicians introduce digital plant cultivation technologies into agriculture and consult and provide support for enterprises in the implementation of modern plant cultivation strategies. Addinionally, we develop established procedures together with practitioners further and explore new solution concepts.

Tomorrow in your mind
In its report 'Towards 2015/2030' the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) of United Nations found out: In 2030 the rate of hungry people will be 40 percent higher than in 1995. In same time crop production will be raised about the half, but farm land only at 7 percent.

To input more ressources in crop production will not help to close the gap. A more intensive production will raise the danger of lodging and illness and isn't compatible to the huge ecological awareness in Central Europe.

Precision Farming is the solution for this challenge.

What means Precision Farming?
Today Precision Farming is one of the most important agent of productivity in agriculture. Farmers consider the differences of soil and the variable gain ability inside a field.

Advantages of precision farming

  • The input of ressources will be more efficient.
  • The mass of fertiliser bases on the actual need of plants. In 'good' supplied subareas farmers save fertiliser, in 'less good' supplied subareas they raise their harvest.
  • Agriculture becomes more ecological, without cut back in harvest and protein or oil content.
  • Because of documentation of plant production agriculture will be more consumer-friendly.


Content of precision farming
Precision Farming means: agricultural production will be connected with using of modern technologies, e.g. GPS technology, GIS technology and sensors.

Precision Farming includes many different points:

  • precision agriculture (basic fertilisation, N-fertilisation, tillage, seed, growth regulator, herbicide, fungicide)
  • mechanical field work (manual and automatic guidance systems, controlling of machines, optimisation of routing traces)
  • documentation and control (planar measurements, crop mapping, controlling of worktime and machines' data, local data management, field record system)

In all subareas Agri Con feel at home.
